Despite loss, Col. City on upswing
DECATUR â€” Though Columbia Cityâ€™s girls golf team suffered another loss Tuesday night, the Lady Eagles posted their best score in three years.
Bellmont, which is undefeated, hosted and dropped Columbia City by a 173-179 score at Cross Creek Golf Course.
Though the team went home without a win, Columbia City Head Coach Jim Thompson was very pleased with the Lady Eaglesâ€™ score.
â€śThatâ€™s as good as Iâ€™ve ever felt with a loss,â€ť Thompson said. â€śBellmont is a good team and we were playing on their course. All of our girls played well. We were in it until the end.â€ť
Columbia City was led by sophomore Macenzie Lane, who scored a 40.
â€śForty is a really strong score,â€ť Thompson said. â€śEspecially away from home on a course sheâ€™d never played before.â€ť
